[applause] and it was just last week that many of us gathered in the mission to have a at home celebration there and at that time we exchanged complements as to who could say the best things about the community, but the best thing i can say about the community is that your commitment to family values, to education, to the work ethic, to a sense of community, to faith, and to family for all of that, to the courage of many of your ancestors our immediate families to come to america and make the future better for your families with that optism, with

for that year. i can tell you that working with americas cup taught me volumes about how red and i quick we can be when we're smart in planning ahead to supply the capacity when and where it needs to be. so, summaries about first round of workshops we had on october 30th, these are just two of the six slides. we have the marked up maps, the top six concerns. we also have pages of individual concerns that came out of that. these are also posted on our website because we want this process to be transparent. if you weren't able to make work shock 1 on october 30th we're hoping you'll help us december 4th the next workshop. at that workshop i've already heard loud and clear from the community let's have better data on the integration of land use and transportation. so, we are preparing maps that show not only all those transit networks but what the land use is, making sure the future transit is falling where the land use needed to be. but thanks to the planning department, we've got those maps underway. what's really interesting is the comment that came out was, okay, we've got this data, we know i

for the america's cup is good data, but this is specific to this area. that's a little bit different than the america's cup which as a huge spill. i'm glad there is a commitment to work closely with the neighborhood surrounding the development. so, thank you. >> may i? >> supervisor kim. >> thank you. mr. albert, thank you so much. i do appreciate the fact i do think the outreach has been done since august in the neighborhood and there have been a number of meetings, the turnouts have been really great. i think those from the warriors and [speaker not understood] have been really supportive outreach and i want to appreciate that. for a project of this size. i was wondering if you could go over a little bit some of the lessons we learned from the giants stadium as another large kind of public event institution in the city. i know that we've collected the data. we have some kind of [speaker not understood]. what were positive things the city could do or meet the needs or increase of the giants stadium? what were some of the lessons we learned, things we can improve on for the next project?
i'm concerned about america. this election is over, but our principles endure. i believe the principles upon which this nation was founded are the only sure guide to a resurgent economy and to renewed greatness. like so many of you paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. i so wish, i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction but the nation chose another leader and so anne and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. thank you and god bless america. you guys are the best. thank you so much. thank you. thanks guys. >> reporter: you know see on the stage now that mitt romney's wife anne, his five sons, their spouses and 16 of his 18 grandchildren who have been across the street in a hotel watching the returns tonight have all joined him on the stage. now he told us earlier in the day that he had only written one speech when he came into boston on his campaign plane this afternoon and that was a victory speech. obviously he did not give that speech t
, gaza will be a quiet place. >> reporter: america is poised to help both sides. the obama administration says it will ask congress to increase funding for israel's defense system that helped intercept 80% of hamas rockets. and american tax dollars also provide assistance to the u.n. organizations that support the palestinians. with egypt as mediator, both sides are trying to negotiate a more permanent agreement. israel wants to end weapons smuggling at the gaza. hamas wants to end a five-year border blockade. >>> thanksgiving warning turned into a nightmare for hundreds of people caught up in a major pileup in texas. more than 140 cars and trucks lay twisted and broken. the huge crash happened as holiday travelers tried to navigate through dense fog. drivers could do little to get out of the way. >> i just grabbed my kids, pulled them out of the car and ran. that's all i could do. >> at least two people died and more than 80 were hurt, several critically. and rescue crews credit many drivers for helping each others while first responders were overwhelmed. >>> police in berkeley are hopin
is the america's cup experience. you remember the weekend supposed to end by weekend. october 6 or october 7 where we had america's cup fleet week, giants, 49ers, everything happening. we had extraordinary transit modes. we had record rider ship on every single conveyor of people moving out of the area. the lesson is don't scare people away. invite them to take transit. make the options real. do fantastic marketing. i have a feeling our transit was some of the highest we ever saw. it is much more malleable formula. i would say the assumptions back in '99 weren't that far off from where we were, but the trends we're seeing now are positive in getting more people walking and bicycle and especially with the america's cup experience on transit. >> my question, then -- another question on the giants stadium, when you looked at the cost in terms of the transit investments that we had to make, some increased demand in the neighborhood, do you feel like we were able to adequately calculate those costs and how with the warriors arena do we plan to estimate from that? and if the impact fee is in the r
or the economy or america's standing in the world. these are the ones who have recklessly ignored the fact we cannot keep running trillion dollar deficits every year. somebody suggests that maybe the taxpayers should not keep subsidizing every last program. their reckless and idiotic approach threatens our very future. anyone who is serious about solving the problems we face should ignore all of that, starting with the president. the election is over, but the economy and fiscal problems of the past several years have only gotten worse. it is time for the president to present a plan that rises above these reckless and radical voices on the hard left, that goes beyond the talking points of the campaign trail, and that has a realistic chance of passing the congress. the time for campaigning is over. it is time for the president to lead. a little over a week ago, i attended a meeting with the president at the white house that was positive and productive. afterwards, i was confident that all sides were eager to figure out a solution to the challenges. as i've said repeatedly, the only person in am
know in our hearts, for the-america the best is yet to come. >> good morning i am james fletcher president obama winning the vote last night. >> good morning i annie hong. he went a for more your bid. it was a tight race. >> before he gets back to work this morning early this morning he took some time to celebrate his victory with his supporters right here in chicago. >> (cheers & applause) an identified crowd greeted president barack obamas early wednesday morning. he says he is ready for more years. >> and your struggles five return to the white house more determined and more inspired than ever about the work there is to do and the future that lies ahead. >> his reelection comes after a nail biting night of returns the president defended his home turf in one of several critical swing states including ohio pushing him over the 270 electorial vote marks. >> i want to thank every american that persist in this election. >> he had been in state statistical dead heat with challenger mitt romney who conceded the race was the morning. >> in the weeks ahead i look for to sitting down ag
of be the moderator for tonight, as we go through this first-ever challenge america summit. so i've got just a few things that, you know, i wanted to do with everyone, before we get into the program. first of all, i just want to take a minute and have everyone just look around this room. in this room, we have amazing people that are corporate, nonprofit, and government, all focused on challenge driven innovation in some way or another. this is a really powerful,interf people that are gathered here to look at how competitions can drive innovation. that's what tonight is all about, is, you know, the next step in creating a real wave of innovation. my job tonight is just to give you a little bit of background on what we are, what we're tiqp)q)s that we have.roup of so just to get going with that, i want to tell you a little bit about this thing called the night rover/< challenge. this is a collaboration between the clean tech open, unoodle, and nasa. it's a program from nasa's office of centennial challenges. and it's challengin the best innovators in america to create radical new energy storage tec
a little too early in the recession and too quick into austerity and california is america's greatest economy, let's not forget that, much bigger than many, many states combined. right now, that's driving america and technology. >> the biggest doesn't necessarily mean greatest, does it, gary b? >> no, it didn't. and jonas is right. we'll have a chance to see how quickly, quote, unquote, california's economy grows, but i want to come back to one other point and jonas made the comment, government can create jobs. government cannot create jobs. first off to hire teachers, that's the biggest kenard out there, that's not the government's job. we would have had millions of net jobs, instead zero net jobs. the government does not create jobs, so that's silly. >> jonas, quickly respond. >> china's created jobs. it's not good jobs, government planning jobs, but if you think the government can't create jobs, look across at the state level. >> and that was-- >> you were right before it's crowding out good private sector jobs. >> exactly. >> you can create jobs at the government level. >> i'm tal
of america. we also live in the technology center of what is going on in the nation and maybe the world. we really wanted to draft off the modern cleanliness of those companies, of google, twitter, apple, yahoo!, facebook. probably forget someone. they are fueling the economy, we want to draft off that. that makes this interesting. we added a hash tag to the name. no one's done that. we want the bay area -- i guess there are 8 million, maybe more or maybe less, we want them all to participate. by this logo it says come on, let's show the nfl we are in this together that. is pretty much it. [applause] >> short and sweet. thank you, rich silverstein. listen, the ceo of the 9ers is here. obviously this is not happening if the 9ers are not building a state-of-the-art, brand-new facility. we are excited to see it. it is going up fast. will it be ready in time for super bowl 50. we hope we have the honor of hosting it. mr. york.

and bicycle and especially with the america's cup experience on transit. >> my question, then -- another question on the giants stadium, when you looked at the cost in terms of the transit investments that we had to make, some increased demand in the neighborhood, do you feel like we were able to adequately calculate those costs and how with the warriors arena do we plan to estimate from that? and if the impact fee is in the rider ship, what you pay when you get on mound and i cover that, what are some ideas that we may have to explore? >> we do have a lot of great information from the america's cup. i can tell you not just muni, because there is so much more [speaker not understood]. they provided what their cost was to the augmented service. america's cup, one thing we wanted to do was deal with the perception if there was a major event on one part of town draining other parts of town from resources. we developed the people plan to float the high level of transit above the baseline so you could see the ongoing service in every neighborhood isn't really affected by the great demand in t
with chairman hall for nearly four years to ensure america obtained human space flight. the budget of 2010 threatened to stop that, he used all his tools of public service to help him win the battle. here are a couple of those tools he had, neil armstrong, tom stafford, part of a bipartisan coalition to put the united states on a path to go into orbit. as a boy who grew up within a mile and a half of the johnson space center, i saw ralph hall make history, that my kids, your kids, can see americans go into space. one more slide. we've all talked about the children earlier this year, because you did that, my kid said, dad, let's jump out of a plane when i turn 18. thank you, mr. chairman, you made a difference in my life and a difference to so many people. mr. smith: i yield two minutes to the gentleman from florida, bill posey. mr. posey: thank you, mr. chairman. i appreciate the opportunity to join with me colleagues in recognizing chairman ralph hall for his tenure as chairman of the house science committee. during his service, he reached acrong the -- across the aisle and forged biparti

in four years, and we feel what we believe are america's best ideas. it's grand canyon, yosemite, but also stewarding america's history and that would include independence hall, gettysburg, mount rush more, and most recently flight 93. my dress uniform and that famous hat is really derived from the world war i uniform from 1916, little changed from that time. the first rangers that patroled our parks before there was a park service were calvary soldiers. the presidio here in san francisco sent buffalo soldiers up to yosemite and sequoia every summer to control the parks, to keep the poachers out and to begin the construction of roads. the first federal superintendent of sequoia national park was colonel charles young. he happened to be the third african-american to graduate from west point. he went on to become the first black colonel in the army. amazing story. i believe he'll be honored sometime later this year by some sort of a national monument at his home in ohio. so, pretty interesting fellow and pretty amazing leadership demonstrated. today our rangers across the country perform mod
america's cup. that was a tremendously important experience. actually we treated that input from the outreach seriously and we rowntded up the input we got from america's cup and through the progress reports and at the cac meetings of this project and at the hearing we got input as well and on the website you will see pages of community input we managed and structured and categorized it and it's shaping this assessment for us. but i don't want to down play how important it was to play with the america's cup. we piloted and tried our hand at new things and erks lie and a project and carried hundreds of people and that is a pilot project that could have a legacy. we have the bike sharing program this spring and we work with the companies to do a proxy bike sharing program and get it place for the america's cup and valet parking and giving pedestrians real time estimates how long it goes from point a, say the ballpark to the ferry building and helping visitors orient themselves around the waterfront and this is a advantage that we have piloted and try our hand at some solutions.
